BORKNAGAR: Stellen neuen Gitarristen vor!
Vor der Veröffentlichung ihres neuen Studioalbums stellt die Band nun einen neuen Mann an der Gitarre vor und musiziert ab sofort wieder als Quintett. Jostein Thomassen beerbt Jens F. Ryland, der die Band 2018 verließ.
Wie Øystein G. Brun durchblicken lässt, dürfte Jostein Thomassen bereits auf dem kommenden Album zu hören sein:
"I am extremely happy to get a new axeman at my side, and it has been a pleasure to learn to know Jostein both as a person and as a musician. We have already rehearsed quite some together this winter, but also worked intensely here in my Crosound Studio to record guitars for the upcoming album. I am truly amazed by the level of professionalism and dedication Jostein has shown throughout the process. And I stand in awe for his crispy clear tone, precision and beautiful feel as a guitarist. Onward mate"
Jostein Thomassen fühlt sich in seiner neuen Band direkt wie zu Hause:
"Borknagar’s music is a perfect match for my musical taste and playing style. Melodic, raw and challenging. I'm honoured to be a part of the band and look much forward to share the stage with allof them for the upcoming gigs. The last months work together with Øystein, with both new and older songs, have been rewarding as a guitarist, learning new ways of musical thinking. His sharp sense of details in musical compositions, sound and chord progressions truly makes the BORKNAGAR sound unique! Watch out...amazing release ahead!"
